About Us

Premier Special Needs School Since 1954

Beginning in 1954, the Sisters of Notre Dame set the standard in Northeast Ohio for providing the highest level of education and care for children, grades K-8, with special learning and social needs. This tradition continues today as Julie Billiart Schools. With one campus in Lyndhurst and another in Akron, we are empowering students to believe that anything is possible.
Words From Our Parents
"I am so thankful for Julie Billiart Schools and all they have done for my family. It was all my prayers answered when my children were accepted to JB. The teachers and staff are well trained and make all the children feel special and loved. My kids are happy and have made great academic and social strides. My kids love everything about JB and look forward to going to school everyday and seeing their friends and teachers. JB is truly a one of a kind school enriching young lives everyday" - Betsy D. 
"This is the most amazing school ever and I cannot say enough good things about it. My son, who is in the first grade, has come such a long way in the past two years. I have seen so much growth. The faculty and staff at JB have been golden to him, nurturing his spirit and thirst to learn. They have all the resources necessary, specialized to the individual learning of teach child, and the heart that goes with it. It truly has been a blessing to watch my son grow with the sunshine and heart they offer him. I don't think we would have stayed in Ohio if it wasn't for JB! " -  Monique H  
"We LOVE  Julie Billiart Schools! My daughter has really come out of her shell since she started attending two years ago. We had so much anxiety in the beginning and were overwhelmed with her diagnoses, school options, and just getting through each day. All of the teachers and staff at JB are patient and willing to take the extra time to make sure we as parents are comfortable and understanding even on the days we are running late or forget a permission slip. We would certainly recommend JB to anyone who has a differently-abled child. " - Nicole S.
